General Notes:

BCJ/Jerry Moore matrix - great combo. A great show to end the tour
in epic May - love the 18 1/2 minute Sugaree.

Editing Notes:

- Dynamics
Waves L2 was used for minor limiting (-0.7 threshold), and no EQ was
used on the two primary sources. For the patch AUD source (d1t01+02)
a little high end shelf was employed to get it closer to Moore's AUD.

- Pitch/Synch
AUD synched to the SBD.

AUD Pitch Adjustment ranges (in cents):
d1t01 > d1t02: +11 to +14 - patch AUD
d1t02 > d1t04: +12 to +13
d1t05 > d2t02: +19 to +21
d2t03 > d3t06: +08 to +11
d3t07 > d3t09: +12 to +15

- Envelope Edits
The following are places where the SBD and AUDs had splices, holes or
incomplete coverage in reference to the final matrix timeline. Tuning
and crowd noise holes are not mentioned - only incomplete music sections.
Full coverage is achieved.

Many thanks to Betty Cantor Jackson for recording the SBD source and

Sacks for getting it out there.

well done chappy! This Sugaree is perhaps my fave, I don't know. Garcia is in fine voice and I love hearing the aud.reaction to his sweet guitar solos.
Otherwise, you know that little 1/10th of a second pause between streaming songs? It really gets me here because the transition between Good Lovin & Sugaree is normally so seamless it kills me when there is a pause while it buffers. I would rather wait for the entire show to buffer so I can listen to it seamless from start to finish, rather than song to song. But besides that it is a joy to have daily access to shows like this.

This show is a little wierd. They fall into some cool little rhythms that I haven't really noticed - peculiar. But good!

The 'matrix' mixes are pretty neet - to hear the SBD merged with a nice audience recording. I definately appreciate the effort.

Sometimes these matrix recordings are a bit odd, though - and it's to be expected, really. You will notice a strange 'swishing' in the stereo field, not unlike a phaser effect. It is those high frequencies that either cancel or are summed from the adding of one sources wave to another sources wave - especially where one of the sources is audience or hand-held.

Not complaining, just saying. Actually - it's kinda psychedelic! :)

Compare this Sugaree with the monumental 5/19/77 Fox Theater version: the band's loaded for bear here too, but refrains from pulling the trigger on the third bridge and instead just slathers bittersweetness over all. Hypnotic NFA > Wharf Rat also, among other high lights...

I won't do much a review here except to give Chris Chappell his deserved thanks. This matrix is excellent and a wonderful addition next to the betty board. The matrix really gave it that human quality that lets us close our eyes and be there. Last night the release of of this show as, "To Terrapin, Hartford 77" was announced meaning this won't be here for much longer, and I even half-expected it to already be down by this morning. If you have the chance to give this a listen, hurry. If you have the means to acquire, hurry even more.

In case you are not familiar with this one. Top 10 Bertha followed by an excellent 77 Good Lovin', which is followed by the Sugaree of all Sugarees. I'm sure many out there have their all time favorite version, and it is more than likely a May 77 version. I won't quarrel that a handful of 77 Sugarees round out the top of any Top 10 list worth a damn, but they are all pretenders next to this one, each and every one of them. The Candyman has a little something extra, and the Brown Eyed Women is either your #2 or #3 all time. Evaluating purely on vocal performance, this BE Women stands alone.

Set 2 roles out a bit rocky. Jer has some level issues during Samson, and Tenn Jed is just standard. Then the rest of the set is so good it makes this not only the best show of May, but of the whole year. There is nothing else akin to this type of jamming in 1977, it only exists in 1976 and before, making this one, oh so special. By the time NFA comes into focus you'll be hooked for good.

Sound: 5/5
Show: 5/5
Overall: 10/10
